Another well deserved award! amfAR announced today that Valentino Garavani will be honored with the Award of Inspiration at their 4th Inspiration Gala in New York on June 13th at the Plaza. Under the guidance of amfAR’s late Founding International Chairman Dame Elizabeth Taylor, Valentino founded L.I.F.E., an organization to support people living with HIV/AIDS in Italy. He also donated proceeds from his 30-year retrospective dinner in 1992 to AIDS patient care, raising $400,000. This year’s Gala will be chaired by amfAR Chairman Kenneth Cole, Alexa Chung, Nina Garcia, John Demsey, Thakoon, and Michael Bastian. Once again the event will be produced by Josh Wood Productions.
